Fani Popova-Mutafova (1902-1977) was one of the most important Bulgarian historical fiction writers of all times. She was sentenced to seven years of imprisonment by the Bulgarian communist regime during the war because of her alleged "pro-German allegiance". After eleven months, she was released for health reasons, but was forbidden to publish anything between 1943 and 1972. During this period, she translated Italian literature.
